1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I didn't enjoy this ale at all. Almost no color... very light straw. The frothy, everlasting, white head is the best thing this brew has going for it... and head is ancillary at best.
Smells like a cheap American standard with a little spice thrown in.
Flavorless... not offensive, at least. Well-balanced, but so is Evian.
Light-bodied and fizzy.
Don't bother with this one.

Dark yellow in color with a tiny white head. Has a barley wheat aroma. Taste grainy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I only ordered this beer becuase I got a free glass at the brewery. It was light in flavor with citrus overtones. It lacked any good charachteristics. Unless you get a glass don't bother.

Clean white head, quickly fading. Light gold color, slightly hazey. Kinda malty, somewhat spicey nose. Light body, malty, corny flavor. Seems stale also? Kinda pastey. Yer outta here!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Started off sweet and thicker than their pilsner. Finish was on the bitter side and leaning towards unpleasant. When drinking something of this style, I look for refreshment - I was not quenched nor refreshed - I was more aggrivated, actually.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A clear golden color with a whithe head. The aroma is of citrus and sweet honey. The flavor has some hoppiness to it with sweet honey and some bitterness that lingers.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head dissipates quickly. A little hoppy, highly carbonated. Starts out dry them moves to a semi-sweet aftertaste. A friendly medium bodied palate, somewhat thin. Played very safe. Still this curve ball is in the dirt.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lasting white head atop a gold body. Sweetly malty grain aroma and very clean of most fruitiness and just a hint of hoppy floral hop aroma. Grainy maltiness starts sweet then moves to well balanced and finishes dry with a light hop flavor and aftertaste. No fruitiness and pretty clean like a good Kolsch should be. Lighter body and subdued carbonated with a nice smoothness. Overall pretty good representation of the style, not a lot of complexity, just a good balance of hops and malt makes this a very good, easy drinking session beer for summer quaffing.

Not very good. Had a skunky kick to it. Maybe I had a bad batch so I'll try it again.
